COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brewed (with help from our great friend Jean of Tired Hands!) on the day of my grandmother’s passing (Norma), this is an inspired Biere de Mars fermented entirely in oak and inoculated with our house spontaneous culture.

Bottle. Hazy amber liquid with medium off-white head. Aroma of lemons, bread, apples, wood, funk and light earth. Taste is dry and light to medium sour with notes of lemons, bread and toast. Medium bodied with medium carbonation. Really nice.

750mL bottle, sent from 22 oz. bottle, sent from Glouglouburp (thanks a lot, Dany), pours an opaque dark orange amber with big white head. Aroma brings out lots of wood, wild yeast, and light tart tannins. Flavour brings out exceedingly complex notes of brett upfront, followed by wood, earthy notes, and more wild notes. This stuff is amazingly complex - no sourness at all, but lots of wild, funky notes. Remarkable depth to this beer. Awesome stuff.

UPDATED: MAR 8, 2014 750ml bottle in a tasting glass. 2011 version. Pours hazy amber with an off-white head. Aroma of a nice tartness, light oak, some floral notes, light fruits, and caramel and pale malts. Flavor a great blend of the tartness and everything else. Smooth texture. Really good. Edit: 2013 bottle. Pours hazy, deep amber with a lacy off-white head. Aroma of tartness, oak, some wine and grapes and fruits, and nice caramel malts. Flavor the same with a great blend. Smooth texture. Amazing.

750 ml bottle with red wax. Poured from a limbic basket into a Hill Farmstead wine glass. Pours a darker copper with a beige head of foam. Dark fruits, cherries, fruity funk. Nice acidity in the taste with a mild sweetness throughout. Dries out in the finish. Moderate carbonation.

At SARA West Ashley line/tasting. Very good saison/sour. Not sure if I'll remember it, but but it was very good. Excellent.

RichTheVillan (2456) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - OCT 24, 2013
Bottle from International Trade; reddy brown pour with soapy tan head, fruity aroma, sweet honey taste, raisins, sour and the trademark HF funk going on excellent beer, best I’ve had of this style.

mathieuc (1166) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 15, 2013
Thanks to czar for the opportunity, congrats on 3K too! Pours a hazy copper with no head and thus no lacing. Aroma is really fruity, with peaches and tangerines being the main culprits. Taste is also really fruity with peaches at the front and lightly tart. Some sweetness in there too enhancing the fruit juice feel of this concoction. Carbonation was kinda low but it doesn’t detract you from the awesomeness. Some grapes and a winey feel. Medium body, insane drinkability. Awesome!

Advocate_Ames (421) - Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 27, 2013
Pours clear and amber with a soft carbonation that leaves a sticky ring that hugs my glass. The aroma is of sweet malts, yeast, light spice, oak, mild vinegar, and fruit notes. I taste oak, yeast, cherries, tropical citrus tones, and a mild vinegar flavor. The finish was of yeast, fruits, and a tart character. Overall a very good beverage.
